The top photos of the 2016-2017 Victoria summer

It was another glorious summer in Victoria and we’ve got the photos to prove it.  From a sunny Christmas to an epic Australian Open and a perfect Australia Day, October through February was special.  Behold, some of the best captures of the season, taken by Instagrammers around Victoria:

All of our residents and visitors enjoyed the warm summer water temperatures.

Much glamping was to be done, especially on the Great Ocean Road.

Summer = sailing on the Mornington Peninsula.  

We lost count of the number of perfect days.

Of course, there was no chance of a white Christmas

Merry Christmas Melbourne 🎄🙌🏼🎄👌🏼🎁 #melbmoment

Traffic in Lakes Entrance picked up during the summer.

Up the Murray River, different modes of transportation were used.

The King of Summer?  Roger Federer, who surprised us with another Australian Open win.

Welcome to our happy place. 👏 #AusOpen #AOBlue

Just about anywhere in Victoria was a good spot for a sunset, including Loch Ard Gorge.

When the sun came back up, the 12 Apostles turned gold.

Australia Day in Melbourne was perfect.

Happy Australia Day from Queen Victoria Market #Melbourne 🇦🇺🇦🇺🇦🇺 #RestaurantAustralia

Although the day after was a bit of a struggle for some.

The average temperature in January? 26 degrees.

Ideal fishing weather in East Gippsland.

You know what’s up next, of course.  Autumn!
